MAME is not open source

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 193.11.245.228] on November 29, 2007 08:48 AM
Just wanted to point out that MAME is not open source.

From the article
"you can run this open source application under Linux."

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MAME#Legal_status_of_MAME
"While MAME is available at no cost, including its source code,
it is not open-source software or free software because commercial
use and redistribution are prohibited."
